I'm not talking about the way I play, because I believe that there are no two drummers/percussionists that perform the exact same. Though still, I might try to copy or mimic some of my favorite drummer’s key moves and maneuvers because I think it’s cool. But what I’m really talking about, is having little to no individuality when picking your set. I basically picked my snare drum, timbales, all my drumheads, and half of my cymbal setup (only composed of a pair of hi-hats and a ride cymbal) based on what the drummer in my favorite band uses. I just can’t think up a set of my own, that would even come close to matching the awesome sound that the drummer in my favorite band found in his set. Maybe this makes me sound “closed minded” or “lacking imagination” but maybe I just am. Does that make me a bad drummer or a bad person for doing that? Is there anyone else out there on this forum who does the same thing?
